Fast Facts:
  • The 5.0 V8 in these cars came factory equipped with forged aluminum pistons – a feature you won’t find in today’s stock high performance cars. Thanks to exceptional knock control from modern ECU’s, cast pistons get the job done for most factory high performance applications. Back in the day, however, forged pistons were a “safety net” against detonation damage at these power levels
  • Note that ’93 models received hypereutectic pistons – while these are cheaper than forged, the high silicone content found in hypereutectic pistons adds thermal stability and increases the piston’s resistance to knock
  • The 5.0 also came with forged steel connecting rods, tuned stainless steel header manifolds, double roller timing chain, and low friction roller lifters. Despite the 225 hp rating, realistic output was closer to 205 HP. This was reflected in the ratings of 1993 5.0 Mustangs, presumably to make the new 1994 model appear more powerful on paper
  • Despite the low power output, one of the appealing traits of the Fox body has always been its weight – or lack of it. The ’92 LX hatchback has a curb weight (no options) of only 2,834 lbs. The following generation (1994 GT) tipped the scales at 3,276 lbs – a gain of over 400 lbs
  • Back in 1987, the decision was almost made to switch the Mustang over to a less expensive front wheel drive layout. Thankfully, input from the public swayed the opinion of Ford executives, and the RWD platform was kept. Ford instead made the front wheel drive platform into its own car and named it the Probe
  • This was the first generation Mustang built on Ford’s “Fox” platform, shared with many Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. The 3rd gen Mustang eventually earned the “Fox-body” nickname for easy reference, despite the fact that all Mustangs up until 2004 used the Fox platform
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the body-colored side moldings and bumper rubber strips (LX models)
  • Rear bumper receives “Mustang” lettering
  • The following year (1993) was the final year of the Foxbody
  • 1993 models saw the switch to cast hypereutectic pistons. ’93 models feature a lower 205 hp rating to account for the mass air flow system, revised camshaft, and other misc. small changes made throughout the production run. A CD player became optional in 1993 as well
